    I'm spending the day with a deaf friend of mine, and she really wants to try a sign language conversation over Face Time. She reached out on her facebook, but none of her signing friends seem to have the iPhone 4 yet. Is there anybody here she can try it out with?

    If I knew sign language I would. That apple commercial where the boy/girl are doing it was heart warming!

    Is it possible to have an ASL conversation using one hand and not fingerspell everything? I am curious how it would actually work without having to prop the phone up.

    I took a year of ASL in college a few years ago. If I wasn't so rusty, I'd do it. But I'm afraid I'd spend half the time looking in my ASL dictionary. ;)

    I could spell my name. That's about all I can do in sign language. I hope you find someone!

    Check on alldeaf.com. I have a iPhone 4, but I don't know ASL.

    Here is one that has a iPhone 4 that know ASL:

    I thought the commercial was very touching, too, but I thought with the way they were holding the device, it was too close for either person to see everything to understand the conversation. I guess they're just trying to get you to understand all the possibilities... FaceTime really can be that awesome sometimes.

    Yes, fluent ASL users can communicate using one hand. They do it all the time while eating, driving, carrying something, etc.

    For extended communication, you can stand the naked iPhone 4 on its side unlike the older versions.

    My signed English is pretty rusty, but if you still need help.... btw, is the first step in obsolesence for the CRS?
